Rescheduled for Tuesday, April 22
Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, 4th Street, Classroom A
(The Jefferson School City Center is located at 433 4th Street, NW, between West Main Street and Preston Ave. There is adequate parking at the 4th St. main entrance. The Vinegar Hill Cafe is located inside the Center.)
Guest Speakers: Kristin Szakos, Charlottesville City Council; Gail Esterman, Manager, Child Care Quality, Children, Youth & Family Services
Because “it does take a village to raise a child," this meeting is for everyone - whether you are a parent or not. You are a citizen of our community. You vote.
The League of Women Voters of the Charlottesville Area supports community-based efforts to improve the quality, affordability and accessibility of child care in the Thomas Jefferson Planning District, and so we have invited Kristin Szakos and Gail Esterman to speak on the many factors affecting child care. Learn about the actual costs for care and what those costs buy. Learn about Virginia child care subsidies and when a subsidy really isn't one. Learn about where our State stands, e.g., Virginia with the eighth highest per capita income in the US has the 40 th lowest maximum child care provider reimbursement rates. Learn the role businesses play in this endeavor.
Lunch is available at the Vinegar Hill Café in the Jefferson School Center. Plan to join friends there before or after the noon program. A link to their menu:
This is your opportunity to explore this critical topic!
Join us on Tuesday, April 22, noon, at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, 4th St.
